Erdoğan following in the footsteps of Makarios

Merkel's visit to Cyprus and Papandreou's in Ankara visits, both produced good results. Let us not forget that there is a "WAR" going on in Turkey itself between the so called deep-state & the CDU-CSU equivalent of Turkey, i.e. the "mild" islamist AKP.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sometimes reminds me of Makarios in the early 60s, trying to push forth with some desperately needed fundamental changes while keeping the military/militaristic idiots at bay. Not an easy thing to do, especially when their most revered jewel is Cyprus & the current constitution bestowing upon them the obligation to do whatever necessary, as they perceive it, to preserve the unity of the state.

Cyprus is inextricably linked to Turkey and its need to adopt her first ever democratic constitution. Spend 5% of your time understanding Turkish developments & that is the amount of understanding you will have about the solution to Cyprus.

I am very hopeful about Cyprus and all her legitimate inhabitants.

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
